   Nov-28-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
csmath: Every champion gets more or less afraid of losing the title. Looks like Magnus is no different except that he is so good in rapid and blitz that it is hard to see how can he lose in those tie-breaks. That is why we need longer matches so that the players have a chance to take more ...
   Apr-29-18 Nakamura vs Akobian, 2018 (replies)
csmath: After 18 moves he had a persistent advantage. He could have played better but this is one of those games where black makes a conceptual error (bishop on a7) and after that there is no recovery. White kept this advantage throughout and eventually got an exchange out of that. Yup, that
   Apr-28-18 US Championship (2018) (replies)
csmath: <How has the US not developed Nakamura?> Nakamura is self-made which is rare. He is definitely a product of Internet chess and chess software. He was coached early by his Sri Lankan stepfather who is a FIDE Master. But after that early time he is truly self-made. There was a ...
   Apr-28-18 Carlsen vs Ding Liren, 2018 (replies)
csmath: This game is not worth any analysis. The only question I have is whether this was prearranged. Probably not but it does look that way. Junk chess.
   Apr-27-18 A Giri vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
csmath: Giri is extremely dangerous, has a very good tactical skills but he has developed rather unattractive "safe" style of play. He also tweets a lot, making some of his colleagues angry with careless comments. Typical youngster. Magnus just got pumped up recently on Giri so this game is ...
   Apr-27-18 Gashimov Memorial (2018) (replies)
csmath: If you look recent games (rapid and blitz) between Magnus and Ding you can see that Magnus has a complete domination over Ding. That of course is not any warranty for classic chess but it shows that Ding's style is not something Magnus has a problem with. Ding prefers complex ...
   Apr-23-18 Carlsen vs R Wojtaszek, 2018 (replies)
csmath: <Even with the black h-pawn gone astray, 15...0-0 seemed perfectly okay to me.> Well, that is a psychology. This h5 move is on the back of mind of every Sicilian player (see games of Topalov). You sort of saying to yourself "I won't castle" ... unless I absolutely must." And ...
   Apr-09-18 GRENKE Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
csmath: <Anyway, all the beautiful games we have to date were produced by the "capitalist" (prize-based) chess system if you discount all the phony patriotic chess played in Russia,> All the birds that fly beautifully have white feathers. And similar nonsense which only I would know.
   Apr-07-18 Naiditsch vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
csmath: I think Magnus was disgusted that he did not take f4 pawn and allowed 18. f5. This is definitely one of those things in Najdorf that you do not allow unless you have a clear compensation in center. But here I think he has a compensation in center because white pieces are really ...
   Apr-07-18 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
csmath: I do not see this as a great game by either but Caruana is definitely having no problem in being resolute when he needs to. This was not his weakness in this game. I think MVL's choice of opening was simply not good. Perhaps he had something in some line there that was not played but
